ConverSLations with Tea Soup
In an effort for all of us to get to know each other better, I’ve decided to conduct some friendly (and not at all prying) questionnaires. I hope it’ll help connect us to others, and bring our little community closer. Today, we have Tea Soup.
What’s your SL name and what do people call you? SL name is Tea Soup and everyone calls me Tea.
How old is your avatar? Is it your first? My av is 3 years and 3 months old. This is my second account. I deleted my first one.
Do you have any SL family or RL family in SL? I have an SL Dad and Sister and one of my RL brothers is in SL.
How old are you and where do you live? I am 25 and live in Texas, USA.
What’s your home life like? crazy, busy, messy, loud, crowded sometimes, but always filled with laughs and love.
Why did you join SL? I was bored, saw this tv show do a special on Secondlife so I decided to check it out. Ended up liking it and here I am almost 5 years later.
What do you do in SL? AFK. lol
I create mesh jewelry, accessories, and poses in Secondlife.
When and how did you start? I started creating things in sl as soon as a couple of months old on my first av. I toyed with building so and started building my own prim houses and such. Later I got interested in doing poses so I figured out a way to doing that and opened up my own little shop within my first year of being in sl. After almost half a year of doing that, I closed up shop, created a new account, deleted the old one, and started a new brand. Last year, after returning to SL from an extended hiatus and reopening my store, I met my sl father and he taught me how to do mesh models and I’ve been working with that since December 2012.
When not working in SL, what are you doing? AFK’ing. spending time with rl family.
In SL I spend time with my boyfriend. he lives on the other side of the country so we use sl to bring us closer.
I also bug the mess out of my sl fam and friends.
Who is the most fun/interesting person you’ve worked with? I haven’t worked with many people in SL and I’m not really involved with many other creators/designers/cordinators/etc. I guess it would be a bit biased but I think my friend Karla Marama would be the best person I’ve worked with. She’s so fun and energetic. Shes a complete dork and loves to talk about how hungry she ALWAYS is. She’s seriously the nicest with her customers and just anyone she meets.
Who do you want to work with? Anyone who’d be interested in working with me!
I’ve never really given it any thought, honestly.
I’m an introvert so.. there’s that.
What do you wish you could do in SL? I wish I could rig mesh! I just don’t have the patience for that.
What is your favourite creation? EVERYTHING!
I have three top creations that I can claim as favorites.
First is a floral headband, Second and Third are two very different styles of bracelets that I created for two different events that aren’t near to starting yet so that’s all I can say about them.
What is your one SL vice or guilty pleasure? I’m not sure if I have one of these in sl..
What is the oldest thing (you can find) in your inventory? LOL, I like the “you can find” in parentheses for this question.
Yeah my inv isnt as organized as it should be but the OLDEST ITEM I could find was this prim teeth attachment from a store that no longer exists, Porcupine Love. Acquired May 17, 2010, two days after I rezzed in-world on this av.
If you had to describe yourself in three words, what would they be? hungry, crazy, afker
Does SL influence your RL style? Vise versa? nope. i could never pull off the looks I give my AV. I have more fashion sense in-world than i do out. lol true story.
What’s your favourite pasttime? creating the things i do for my store is my favorite past time. I wouldn’t be doing this if I didn’t like it. SL and my Store are my past time/hobby. So my answer is SL.
Anything else you want to share? If you ever meet me and I’m quiet, don’t take it to any offense. I’m not too great at socializing and also I afk a lot but I do respond when spoken to. Even if its hours later >.>
